The Primary Advantages Of Disability Insurance

I think that most people would agree that the we live in a state of insurance overload in this country. You need insurance to drive a car, you need it to buy a house (at least you do if you want to get a mortgage from a bank!), you need health insurance to cover medical costs… it seems like everywhere you turn there’s more insurance to buy!

The church has recognized you as one of the leaders of the church. You are helping people, your wife is proud of you. She looks at you with googly eyes and calls you her sweet snoockums.

Think of it this way…when you were forced to pay social security or self-employment taxes to Uncle Sam, in return, SSA made an agreement with you that part of the taxes would provide disability insurance if you ever became unable to work…thus, by filing a claim you’re not asking for a government handout…you’re seeking benefits you should be entitled to…benefits you have paid for!

Personal hygiene is important for health and also if you lose your job and need to find another one!

This is dependent on the item of course. Items we stock are toothpaste, floss, soap, shampoo, extra tooth brushes, hair product, women’s personal items, and even toilet paper although that can be bulky and hard to find an out of the way spot to store it.

SSI provides a monthly check for people who are disabled but have not worked enough or earned enough to be eligible for SSDI. It is based in part on the amount of income you earn. It is also based on the amount of money your spouse makes and how much you might have in savings, assets such as a house or car, and investments.

The often absurd amount of time it takes to work through the system is the main reason you should file your claim immediately after you have met, or expect to meet one of the duration requirements listed above.

They may also need to see your birth certificate. If you don’t have this, contact your local Board of Health or Department of Vital Statistics to find out how to get one. Check your local phone book to find the telephone numbers.

They will want to know where you went to school and what level of education you have. They will want to know if you were in special education classes or if you needed special help at school because of your disability. They will want to how if your condition interfered with your ability to get an education. For instance, did you have to miss class a lot because of your condition?

Let’s say that despite your bad credit you’ve been paying your mortgage for ten years and have built up equity in your home. Your credit card debts equal $15,000. You could take out a thirty-year second mortgage for $15,000 and pay off your credit card debt. The interest rate on the second mortgage is 8%, much lower than the 26% you are probably being charged by your credit card companies. Instead of having minimum payments of $500 each month, your payments on the second mortgage are $110 each month. Of course, you must be very careful because you have swapped unsecured debt your credit cards-for secured debt. If you fail to make the payments on your second mortgage, you could face foreclosure.
